Just checked Met Office site - now it says 'severe gales' and -3C    Hatches are battened, plants are protected as much as possible without a greenhouse. The survivors will survive - those that don't will be replaced with something tougher.  I'm not going out there with more fleece and bubblewrap in this rain

Hosta  - cheers 

No good asking nicely...

Re PMs - hopefully the work the techies are doing on re-modelling the forum will mean that it's much more accessible for tablets and phones etc, and everyone will be able to do everything.  Not long to go now ............ hopefully

Good morning all  G'day Pat

I had a lay in and my first mug of coffee of the day in bed

Hope Wonky and others are feeling much better - good news from Hosta and LilyP

Apparently North Norfolk is getting sleet and gales today - how far north is North Norfolk - think it might include us

Now for another coffee and a wander around to see what's been going on since I fell asleep on the sofa last night

Which subjects............

Thank you Obelixx  that's very good of you (and of your friends - what a lovely garden they have - I love those pulsatillas). 

re the helleborus thibetanus - your friends' garden is acid clay - we're on chalk which is very near the surface.  Hmmmm  I shall do more investigating ............

Thank you once again

Good morning Pat

Hope you're feeling much better very soon ((hugs))

I've spoken to Wonky today - she sounds a lot better - at least she can articulate words rather than mumble - she's very grateful for everyone's kind wishes
